I don't mind watching a dumb movie, but this was too much DUUUUUUUMB for me. I felt myself devolving by the second. Cute girls, though.

The first few scenes reminded me very strongly of those in The Horror of Party Beach (1964). Similar sorts of films. This was released in 1965 and is a bad murder mystery rather than a bad monster movie. The murderer was obvious to me when the character was introduced, but I read a lot of murder mysteries.

Acting and directing are adequate. It moves well most of the time. There are the usual continuity goofs. They're part of the fun in watching these sorts of films. I fast-forwarded through padded scenes. Video and audio quality are good.

Nice bit of nostalgia.

I recently met Read, and he is a great person. He and my mother were friends before he went to Hollywood. This movie was a hoot! Fun to watch someone you have met...

This is so terrible I could not finish it.

And no Candy Johnson. Too bad. Remember her? The perpetual dancing machine with the fringe go-go outfits?

I can play it just fine on this page in my browser, and it doesn't look the least bit green, either.
